The KUKA smartPAD: simply more freedom

The KUKA smartPAD teach pendant was designed to master even complex operating tasks easily. It can be deployed universally and is easy to operate, even for inexperienced users.

Ergonomic robot control panel with capacitive touch display 

The control panel features various holding options for long and comfortable operation by both left-handed and right-handed operators.

KUKA smartPAD: relaxed robot operation in harsh industrial environments 

The context-sensitive interface of the KUKA smartPAD only displays the options relevant at the moment of operation. Thanks to the intuitive operator guidance, less experienced and expert users alike can work quickly and efficiently with a minimum of training.


Universal application

All KUKA robots running on KSS and Sunrise.OS can be operated in the desired language using the KUKA smartPAD. The KUKA smartPAD is hot-pluggable and can thus be connected and disconnected at any time.

Comfortable handling

Straps and handgrips that can be used with both hands greatly simplify operator control. An optional shoulder strap enables work without tiring the operator – particularly during time-intensive projects.

Simple robot jogging with ergonomic 6D mouse

The 6D mouse offers intuitive jogging and reorientation of the robot in three or six degrees of freedom.

Eight jog keys

Up to eight axes or external axes can be controlled directly using separate jog keys on the KUKA smartPAD with no switching required.

Integrated protectors

Integrated protectors offer the greatest possible protection in the event of falling. The scratch-resistant display and the IP 54 protection rating enable operation in harsh industrial environments. 

Simple data transmission

Two easily accessible USB ports enable direct saving and loading of application programs and connection of other supported USB devices.

Efficient operation

Inputs are made quickly and easily via a brilliant, capacitive touch display with an 8.4" screen and high luminosity.

Maintenance-friendly design

A service flap enables simple exchange of the cable as required.

Simple programming with the KUKA smartPAD

Whether you’re a novice or programming expert, the KUKA smartPAD will help you quickly reach your goal. Because it offers the suitable programming options for every requirement. This single control panel enables you to perform the most varied of tasks.

Incredibly efficient: programming with inline forms

KSS-based KUKA robot controllers provide inline forms for the fast, error-free programming of tasks and motion steps. They can be called via menus and are available as standard. This even simplifies the programming of Roboteams with up to six synchronized robots.

Customer-defined program modules

KUKA integrators can expand the library of available KUKA inline forms according to customer requirements. This leads to the creation of special applications which can be easily programmed for recurring tasks. A competitive advantage for system integrators: specially developed inline forms allow for unique solutions, optimally tailored to the companies which use them.
